Private lessons offer a more individualized approach to music instruction as they are tailored
specifically to your skill level. Music lessons are ten dollars for each scheduled one-half

student, you are reserving a regular time slot for instruction. If you must cancel, please be
considerate of our time and do so one day in advance. By doing so, we will make an
attempt to reschedule you during a time slot that is not reserved, although that may or may

weekly lesson time equal value with other extra-curricular activities and thus we work
together to make music.

and easier if you incorporate the
following simple suggestions.
